Gartner Market Guide for IT Infrastructure Monitoring Tools
With the onset of more modular and cloud-centric architectures, many organizations with disparate monitoring tools are reassessing their monitoring landscape. According to Gartner, hybrid IT (especially with IaaS subscription) enterprises must adopt more holistic IT infrastructure monitoring tools (ITIM) to gain visibility into their IT landscapes.

With the onset of more modular and cloud-centric architectures, many organizations with disparate monitoring tools are reassessing their monitoring landscape. According to Gartner, hybrid IT (especially with IaaS subscription) enterprises must adopt more holistic IT infrastructure monitoring tools (ITIM) to gain visibility into their IT landscapes.

The guide provides insight into the IT infrastructure monitoring tool market and providers as well as key findings and recommendations.

Get the 2018 Gartner Market Guide for IT Infrastructure Monitoring Tools to see:

  • The ITIM market definition, direction and analysis
  • A list of representative ITIM vendors
  • Recommendations for adoption of ITIM platforms

Key Findings Include:

  • ITIM tools are helping organizations simplify and unify monitoring across domains within a single tool, eliminating the problems of multitool integration.
  • ITIM tools are allowing infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders to scale across hybrid infrastructures and emerging architectures (such as containers and microservices).
  • Metrics and data acquired by ITIM tools are being used to derive context enabling visibility for non-IT teams (for example, line of business [LOB] and app owners) to help achieve optimization targets.
Forrester: Monitoring Containerized Microservices - Elevate Your Metrics
As enterprises continue to rapidly adopt containerized microservices, infrastructure and operations (I&O) teams need to address the growing complexities of monitoring these highly dynamic and distributed applications. The scale of these environments can pose tremendous monitoring challenges. This report will guide I&O leaders in what to consider when developing their technology and metric strategies for monitoring microservices and container-based applications.

DevOps – an unsuspecting target for the world's most sophisticated cybercriminals
DevOps focuses on automated pipelines that help organizations improve time-to-market, product development speed, agility and more. Unfortunately, automated building of software that’s distributed by vendors straight into corporations worldwide leaves cybercriminals salivating over costly supply chain attacks. It takes a multi-layered approach to protect such a dynamic environment without harming resources or effecting timelines.

DevOps: An unsuspecting target for the world’s most sophisticated cybercriminals

DevOps focuses on automated pipelines that help organizations improve business-impacting KPIs like time-to-market, product development speed, agility and more. In a world where less time means more money, putting code into production the same day it’s written is, well, a game changer. But with new opportunities come new challenges. Automated building of software that’s distributed by vendors straight into corporations worldwide leaves cybercriminals salivating over costly supply chain attacks.

So how does one combat supply chain attacks?

Many can be prevented through the deployment of security to development infrastructure servers, the routine vetting of containers and anti-malware testing of the production artifacts. The problem is that a lack of integration solutions in traditional security products wastes time due to fragmented automation, overcomplicated processes and limited visibility—all taboo in DevOps environments.

Cybercriminals exploit fundamental differences between the operational goals of those who maintain and operate in the development environment. That’s why it’s important to show unity and focus on a single strategic goal—delivering a safe product to partners and customers in time.

The protection-performance balance

A strong security foundation is crucial to stopping threats, but it won’t come from a one bullet. It takes the right multi-layered combination to deliver the right DevOps security-performance balance, bringing you closer to where you want to be.

Protect your automated pipeline using endpoint protection that’s fully effective in pre-filtering incidents before EDR comes into play. After all, the earlier threats can be countered automatically, the less impact on resources. It’s important to focus on protection that’s powerful, accessible through an intuitive and well-documented interface, and easily integrated through scripts.

5 Reasons to Choose Parallels RAS Over Citrix Solutions
Is your business thinking about purchasing a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution? If so, Citrix may be on your radar. While Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops has a lot to offer, it also comes with several significant limitations, especially when it comes to cost and complexity. In this white paper, we introduce you to Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS), and provide five compelling reasons why you should choose Parallels RAS over Citrix.
Virtualization is the go-to technology for organizations to develop solutions enabling employees to securely access work data and virtual desktops, and Citrix Solutions is a leading provider in the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) field. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best VDI solution for your organization.  

In today’s fast-moving and often unpredictable business world, companies need a VDI solution that’s provides safe, secure remote access to critical data and apps while remaining simple for IT admins and end users alike.

Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) is an all-in-one VDI solution that provides:

  • Quick and easy installation
  • Unified Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) administration
  • FSLogix Profile Containers integration
  • User session monitoring
  • Automation and autoscaling
  • Straightforward licensing

When compared to Citrix, Parallels RAS is also much more affordable, faster to deploy and easier to use, which means everything can be up and running in days—not weeks or months.
